The thread to ask the questions we may be too embarrassed to ask elsewhere.

I can normally work out abbreviations but this one has me stumped.

What does this mean?

Too long; didn't read. Said when someone writes a massive post, in particular one without any paragraphs. :mrgreen:

Or, if someone writes a long post, they may stick in "tl;dr" at the end alongside a short summary.

I thought it might be something like Total Loser; Dreaming because I see it often after a long whinge and usually with a HTFU message.

Makes total sense now. :doh:

IIRC had me stumped for a while, then I kept forgetting what it meant and had to keep looking it up! Part of my Internet slang vocab now though. :wink: (If I Recall Correctly) :D
